An error-plagued fourth inning was too much for the Milwaukee Brewers to bounce back against the Cincinnati Reds at Miller Park Tuesday night. The Brewers had a 5-3 lead going into that fourth inning. But the Reds capitalized on a Mike Moustakas’ run-scoring error on a throw home, Erik Kratz’s run-scoring passed ball, a Moustakas bobble on a tough play that should have been an inning-ending pickoff, and three straight infield hits that put the Brewer behind. Milwaukee managed to tie the game 7-7 in the eighth inning, but the Reds Scooter Gennett’s two-out solo home run in the ninth gave Cincinnati the win. The loss keeps the Brewers three-games behind the NL Division-leading Chicago Cubs, who lost to the Detroit Tigers at Comerica Park, 2-1.
